Fuel lines at the rear of the tank have been completed, had an issue originally with the 90 degree an fittings I was using, switched to a tighter radius 90 and have clearance for days. Had to cut a small section of the truck bed due to the service loop I created with the lines so I didn't have a pinch condition. Got new bed to frame mounts ordered as well as wired up the reverse light switch. What's to come.
-Finish wiring to line lock button
-Finish wiring to reverse lockout switch
-Complete exhaust system
-Put in seats
-Mount the ecu and run all the vacuum lines
-Do intercooler piping and intake pipe.
-Catch can setup and lines

Line lock wiring made and mounted on shifter, reverse lockout wired up, reverse light switch wired and all fuel line finished up in the bay. On all the wiring I used some weatherpack connectors instead of hardwiring it, this allows for easier serviceability in the future and for the next person that may own the truck.

Some more updates. Was able to mount and make brackets for the radiator, get the seats installed, instal the ecu and get the Intercooler flipped for better pipe routing. More to come.

Hell yea! Definitely a unique truck to do a build on and the mitsubishi Vin plate helps the cause. Pretty simple truck believe it or not, 4g swap is pretty straight forward just depends on what extreme your trying to go to.

Intercooler piping all done, oil feed and return lines complete as well as wastegate dump tubes complete. All that's is left now is to route some more vacuum lines, catch can/valve cover setup, finish the new ss water line and do the exhaust system and she will be ready to fire up.

We got some more stuff done last night into today morning.

-Boost controller / lines routed
-Coil pack bracket made and mounted
-Coolant water pipe fully welded up, Dan as usual did a great job and pressure checked the pipe
-Exhaust system started, so far tacked up all the way to the back. Last think to get on is the muffler.

Full stainless exhaust complete. Fully welded, front section heat wrapped and hangers created as well. Had to throw a fart cannon on the truck but have it tucked into the roll pan so its not that noticeable. Air intake setup complete as well as power steering pump resivour mounted and line routed. Last step is throw some fuel in the tank and oil in the engine and should have a first start.

More progress. Got the first fire up on the truck, small things here and there that needed some attention (tighten fuel lines and hose clamps). But other than that she is up and running. Running on some 880cc Injesters currently, 2150s will go in before dyno session. Got some new meats put on the truck as well as the caltracs setup on it.

Worked on the front bumper support/crash bar today. Got it all tacked up with my buddy yesterday and got her burned in today. Couple small things left before dyno time.
